Devin Willock told DawgNation earlier this week that he still had a strong interest in Georgia.
It was one of his “dream schools” at that.
The New Jersey native has had a busy timeline over the last week.
He was supposed to take his official visit to Penn State this weekend. That’s where he was committed, but he went in a different direction.
Willock de-committed from that program on Dec. 11 and promptly scheduled an official visit to UGA for this weekend.
That trip went well. It seems fairly safe to say. He didn’t even make it through the weekend before he knew what his next move would be.
Willock committed to Georgia over the weekend.
“I felt the most comfortable there compared to anywhere else,” he told DawgNation on Sunday night. “It has been my dream school for a while and once given the opportunity to play for it, I took it.”
The 6-foot-6, 345-pound offensive tackle prospect now becomes the 15th public commitment for Georgia in the 2020 class.
Willock broke the news with a tweet.

Devin Willock: Getting to know the newest Bulldog
The Paramus Catholic (Paramus, NJ) standout is the first new commitment to play for new Georgia offensive line coach Matt Luke.
Willock rates as the nation’s No. 67 OT and the No. 892 overall prospect for this cycle. The 3-star recruit could play at guard or tackle in his future between the hedges in Athens.
The young man is pretty stoked to be a Bulldog. He’s not able to enroll early out of Paramus as a mid-year graduate, but he sure wishes he could.
This relationship stretched back for a long time. Going back to his first visit and then with each subsequent trip.
“This decision for me was more than just me switching it was something that my whole family felt comfortable with we all knew Georgia was the spot for me since we first visited in june,” Willock told DawgNation. “I’ve loved the school since [my] sophomore year was never really able to think such a dream can come true and now we can officially settle there for the next four years.”
The decision is not specific to a certain position. At least in his mind.
“I committed to being a dawg whether it’s guard or tackle,” he said.
Willock was also able to provide a ringing endorsement to the new offensive line coach in Athens.
“Coach luke is a great guy,” he said. “A real genuine guy that I know is gonna coach me up well. He has great past success with his players and I’m just gonna be another star in the making.”
